WW’s Patio Projects #3: new public sculpture from artist Lucy May.

Inspired by the many kebab shops and Turkish Ocakbasi in the local area, Three Hundred Pounds of Heavenly Joy is a wry celebration of that iconic symbol of low culture, the doner kebab.

Lucy May’s works are fantastical hybrids of consumerist materiality and decorative style, portraying a grotesque yet seductive vision of the world. Signifiers of bad taste and low culture are fused with the grandeur and excess of the Baroque. The work revels in the tension between high art and vulgarity.

Lucy May is a graduate of The Royal College of Art and The Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art.

‘Patio Projects’ is WW Gallery’s rolling public art programme on view 24/7.
